A man is under arrest, accused of making a threat against schools in Shelby and Anderson counties, according to the Kentucky State Police. Dylan Jarrell, 20, is charged with two counts of terroristic threatening.
On Wednesday, KSP said that it had received a complaint that an Anderson County man was threatening and harassing a woman in New Jersey.
KSP said it interviewed Jarrell late Thursday and found evidence of a “credible and imminent threat” to Shelby and Anderson districts.
Police notified school district officials and worked with them to determine a plan of action, officials said.
As a result, Anderson County canceled classes for Friday. Shelby County, which is on fall break, canceled Friday evening activities.
Authorities reported finding a firearm, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, a Kevlar vest, a 100-round high-capacity magazine and a detailed plan of attack in Jarrell’s possession.
Jarrell is being held in the Shelby County Detention Center.
According to an arrest report, Jarrell was previously questioned by the FBI about social media threats to a Tennessee school in May. He admitted to make that threat, authorities said.
